Trench also believed that the lost continent of Atlantis actually once existed and that these tunnels were probably constructed all over the world by the Atlanteans, for various purposes. Trench believed that there was no actual North Pole, but instead a large area with a warm sea dipping gradually into the interior of the Earth. He said that humans were 'living on the deck of a ship, unaware of the life going on under our feet'. ISBN 9781442967588.

This is my very favorite kinds of book--a book on myths, forgotten stories, whispered truths from the past.

In the book, Dr. Bob Curran writes about myths from every corner of the globe. While the title hints at Atlantis and other stories like it, Curran delves much more broadly and also writes about the forgotten lands and realms of America. This was probably my favorite part of the book. While I have read many books on Atlantis, El Dorado and other stories like that, I hadn't really read about, or even heard about, some of the stories and myths in the book from America. I loved the part that talked about the Welsh king and kingdom in Alabama, the lost tribes of the Meulungeons from Kentucky, and Native American stories. Curran spends a lot of time with the myths of American and it made for a nice change of pace from the usual books I read on this topic.

If you're looking for an in-depth read on topics like the Bermuda Triangle, etc., you'll need to look elsewhere. This book serves mostly as an introduction to myths and stories worldwide. For many of the chapters, I can honestly say I already knew of most of what was being discussed. This is a book for beginners and for those who, like me, can't resist gossips, hints, and legends. I have a whole page of new things and topics to read about. (The Devil of Mammoth Cave, Kentucky...who knew?)

Phenomenal information about long-forgotten lands that we remember hearing about from time to time. So much has been lost from generation to generation and the focus is no longer on ancient history, but it needs to be. There are truths we can all learn in this mythological book based on the old stories and legends.

I enjoyed it immensely and recommend it for a good winter read!

Mythological places and forgotten cities are the subject of Bob Curran's ruminations. Not exactly a travelogue, this is more a thought-provoking survey of such unusual locales as Garden of Eden, Avalon, Lemuria, Shangri-La, and the Lost Dutchman Mine. Ponce de Leon, Alfred K. Clark, Don Francesco Vasquex de Coronado, Joseph Rock, and Don Miguel Peralta are among those who have journeyed in search of these lost lands. You can join them ... from your armchair.

I was simply not impressed with this book. To the book's credit I must say that the book covers a lot of territory and gives many starting points for further exploration, but while it covers much territory it doesn't provide much more information than one could obtain by doing a small amount of research on the internet. I bought the book because of an interest in the legend of Hi- Brasil - which is covered in the book. The book was a quick read, but left me wanting something with more depth. If you have little familiarity with the topic the book might be a good place to start - if you've been interested in the topic for a while and have already done some research , you might be disappointed as I was. I would recommend it to someone as a beginners guide.

I expected something with a little more "meat." I may not be giving it a fair shake, but I grew bored early on and there's too much good out there to read to waste precious reading time.
Maldarbaq
Interesting because of the subject matter and informative, but a real slog to get through it. I can't say why exactly, but the style of writing doesn't hold me interest. I'm pursuing it to the end, but I really wanted to be stimulated by the book and am not.

A very interesting read on how some Myths & Legends may have come about such as Atlantis, El Dorado. How some of these places may have vanished due to change in landfall/quakes. It covers a diverse range of different cultural beliefs.
This book describes the origin of many of the names, places from myths and legends I have heard about since childhood.
The author has done a lot of research and presented in such away that it is easy to read.
It is also very interesting the effect that so called stories of lost treasures and cities have had on people in history. Everyone dreams of finding that El Dorado or the fountain of youth, but some people have believed it enough to have risked their lives.

Good read.
